My addiction to strange and wonderful windows reaches levels of derangement in Spain and Italy, where a total lack of chain stores and the lunacy of Catholic private shop owners collide to create surreal window-shopping moments.
Your guide to the latest weird windows (forgive the blurriness of shots in low light):
1. For all your urgent boxing gloves/ crucifix/ soda siphon needs (plus phone with jumbo dial on right).
2. It’s summer, and to remind you, your local bakery has laid out all the rolls so that they’re sunbathing on a breadcrumb beach watched over by burly sesame seed lifeguards (pity I couldn’t get the whole scene in with the donut swimming rings).
3. Automata! At the twist of a key the monkey plays the harp, the crib rocks and the baby sits up and cries.
4. What is this game? Posh fuzball? The goalkeepers appear to be golden women on stilts. There are three separate playing arenas and the whole thing is built into an inlaid polished wood table. Anyone know what it is?
